Folk Music Concert by Fetén-Fetén
October 9, 2017 @ 6:30 pm
The Instituto Cervantes Nueva Delhi, the Embassy of Spain in India, and the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) invite you to folk music concert by the Spanish group Fetén-Fetén on Monday, October 9th at Kamani auditorium in New Delhi at 6:30 p.m.
Fetén-Fetén offers a contemporary interpretation of traditional music and folk dance music, styles that inspire us and that we want to honor using our imagination and creativity. They are two lovers of unusual musical instruments, that’s why in our shows, in addition to conventional instruments like the violin or the accordion, we play weird instruments such as saws, trumpet violins, phono violins or the camping chair flute. The result is a fresh and original music suitable for dancing and having fun as you listen to beautiful waltzes, fox trots, chotis, jotas, seguidillas, rondas, pasodobles or habaneras. It’s a live performance of instrumental melodies that goes back to our roots and adds renewed musical nuances that recall the different European and South American landscapes that Fetén Fetén has visited while on tour. It’s a musical journey that conveys us from the Iberian Peninsula to exotic lands, assimilating Balkan echoes, manouches sounds, Japanese evocations, the cries of seagulls and even the sound of the waves. The original compositions of Fetén Fetén, a variety of musical trends, manage to make the audience smile with evocative sounds and titles like “The Wasabi Jota,” “I’ve seen a bear in the Carpathians” , “Fandango de Atapuerca” or “Swing in a fricassée” It’s a repertoire that amuses and thrills both children and adults alike, since this music tells stories without words and blends well with audiences either in big concert halls or in the open air. They have played in more than 500 concerts across the Iberian peninsula.
